"One thing I like to watch is who plays at home versus who plays on the road. Managers will usually spare their core guys the tougher bus rides of March. This is relevant in Indians camp, where Andres Gimenez is getting most of the home starts at shortstop (six starts, four at home), with Amed Rosario getting his playing time on the road (five starts, three on the road, including long trips from Goodyear to Mesa and Surprise)."
